Conqs Ranked #17 in NJCAA Poll

Sep 17, 2013
The latest NJCAA football poll has been released and the Conqs are officially ranked at #17.  For two weeks the Conqs have been receiving votes in the poll, but cracked the top 20 this week.  Behind stellar performances of several Conq players, the Conqs are on a three-game winning streak, including wins over then ranked Kilgore College and Hutchinson Community College.  Head Coach Gary Thomas is enthusiastic about the Conqs current success.  "Generally I do not pay much attention to national polls, but considering the history of the football program here at DC3, it's nice to be recognized for the job that our coaching staff is doing and the accomplishments of the players.  We are very excited and feel very fortunate to be in the position we are in after only 4 games.  We still have plenty of work to do, and quite a few very capable opponents ahead of us.  We will continue to work hard toward building a competitive college football program that the city of Dodge City can be proud of."  The Conqs will be in action again this week for homecoming, playing Fort Scott.  Game time is 1pm.
